Ancient Mesopotamia

The Sumerian King List and the Diatonic G-Scale Factor 9

William C Henry, 6 March 2015

Editor's Note: Whilst the subject of this article may be somewhat revolutionary in nature and controversial in content, it does provide an interesting solution for the format used in the Sumerian king list. Explorations of other systems would also be more than welcome so that all approaches to this discipline can be examined.

There has long been an issue with the protracted length of reign for the Sumerian kings. Any normal human reigning for 28,800 years is absurd based on our current life span.

However, that absurdity may be based on a relatively simple calculation. What became evident was a correlation in the reignal lengths between the 432 Hertz Scale and the Diatonic G-Scale Factor 9.

The kingships may have been counted in days versus years.

These figures began to converge into a sensible understanding. It was believed that the kings were of celestial origin, and this simple idea would appear to show that premise precisely.

The length of reign also corresponds to the Mayan Long Count Calendar, and the Hindu Yugas. When a 360-day calendar year is factored in, and the lengths of reign are divided by 360, we get normal numbers that equate to celestial portions (72 years). When we take 28,800 years divided by 360 days we get eighty years.

Using the simple reduction formula of A 360 = C, we get the true product.

All lengths of reign prior to the Flood event reduce to Pythagorean 9s, with the exception of En-men-dur-ana of 21,000 years (3), and Ubar Tutu of 18,600 years (6).

These figures may not seem important, but when we think of Tesla's 3, 6, and 9 as a key to the universe, we have energy, frequency, and vibration. These numbers hint at possible celestial disturbances in the flow of energy and frequency, as witnessed by the sacred geometry of the cosmos.

The name En-men-dur-ana can be transliterated as; 'Lord Myself For The Purpose Of', and Ubar Tutu possibly as; 'Dark Flood', as the king before the Flood event.

These extended lengths of reign also relate to seconds in the day, years, and light speed travel. This understanding of light speed travel shows that the ancients understood our physical reality on a much higher level than previously believed.

In Depth

Map of Sumer
The area which formed Sumer started at the Persian Gulf, much farther inland than it is today, and reached north to the 'neck' of Mesopotamia where the two rivers, the Tigris and the Euphrates meander close to each other (click on image to visit the Sumer map page)


We see a marked decrease in the length of reign after the noted Flood event. This Flood has been retold in the Biblical narrative as the Flood of Noah. When using the reduction system, it takes the dating back to 3684 BC, as 3500 BC is the standard for the earliest documentation covering the onset of Sumerian culture.

Some of the dates are not in agreement with conventional scholarly dating, but they dovetail precisely with a dating here of 2344 BC for the Flood event [1].

The Sumerian King List

[1-39] After the kingship descended from heaven, the kingship was in Eridug. In Eridug, Alulim became king; he ruled for 28,800 years (9).

(28,800 360 days = 80 years) - equates to: 288 solar point , 2,888,000 days = 1 Mayan Piktun, 2,888,000 360 = 800 years or two solar years.

Alaljar ruled for 36,000 years (9).

(36,000 360 days = 100 years) - equates to: 360 solar point, 360 circle or square sum.

Two kings; they ruled for 64,800 years (9).

Equates to: 64,800 (9) = 3,600 seconds hour x 18 hour day, 64,800 seconds x 360 days = 6,480 hours, 6480 years = three Zodiac Ages of 2,160 years each, 6,480 hours x 4 = 25,920 hours or years equals one complete zodiac cycle, 6,480 hours per year x 400 years = 2,592,000 or Earth's daily mileage.

Then Eridug fell and the kingship was taken to Bad-tibira. In Bad-tibira, En-men-lu-ana ruled for 43,200 years (9).

Equates to: 432 is the Magic frequency, 2,160 years (one zodiac sign) 5 = 432, 432 squared is the only number almost equal to light speed of 186,624 (186,282.397 mph), there are 432,000 years in a Hindu Kali Yuga as 3,600 x 12 = 432,000, 540 hours month x 8 = 4,320 hours, five miles per second to miles per day = 432,000 miles, fifty miles per second to miles per day = 4,320,000 miles, 500 miles per second to miles per day = 43,200,000 miles.

En-men-gal-ana ruled for 28,800 years (9). Dumuzid, the shepherd, ruled for 36,000 years (9).

Equates to: 3600 icosahedron sum, 3,600 = 3,600 x 10.

Three kings; they ruled for 108,000 years.

Equates to: 108 solar point, Rings of Saturn 108,000 miles in diameter, 1080 octagon sum, 1080 minutes = 60 minutes x 18 hour day, 1080 miles is the distance from the Moon's equator to the south or north poles.

Then Bad-tibira fell (?) and the kingship was taken to Larag. In Larag, En-sipad-zid-ana ruled for 28,800 years (9). One king; he ruled for 28,800 years.

Equates to: 2880 on the Diatonic g-scale.

Then Larag fell (?) and the kingship was taken to Zimbir. In Zimbir, En-men-dur-ana became king; he ruled for 21,000 years (3). One king; he ruled for 21,000 years. Then Zimbir fell (?) and the kingship was taken to Curuppag.

21,000 years. 360 years = 50.33 years.

*We begin to see fractional disturbances in the figures.

In Curuppag, Ubara-Tutu became king; he ruled for 18,600 years (6). One king; he ruled for 18,600 years.

18,600 years 360 days = 51.66 years.

In 5 cities 8 kings; they ruled for 241,200 years (9). Then the flood swept over.

241,200 years. 360 days = 670 years (4).

 

GRAND TOTAL YEARS = 482,400 years (9)
Global Flood = 2344 BC

Total 482,400 360 years = 1,340 years (8)
TOTAL = Global Flood 2344 BC + 1,340 years = 3684 BC

[1] This is close to the approximate date of 2800 BC used in the king list for Sumer.

 

The Great Flood Event of Utnapishtim & Noah

There has long been speculation about the thousands of years that the Sumerian kings are claimed to have ruled, as no human lifespan could encompass such a large number of years.

The pre-diluvian kings who are mentioned are of a celestial nature, as they are simply stars! The time periods are in relation to the ruling part of the sky for that constellation.

All of the year numbers reduce to '9', except for those kings who fall directly before the Great Flood of 2344 BC. These numbers are reduced to '3' and '6', as the Magic Constant of 9 is disturbed due to cosmic issues in the heavens.

Charted here is the process used to work out how the length of reign is reduced when we use a 360-day calendar system, versus the modern 365-day calendar. This reduction shows normal lengths of time, as one degree of the celestial circle equals 72 years, and is known as a celestial portion. This 72 years also happens to be a fairly typical human life span.

When we take the reduced total of the Sumerian king list as 1,340 years, and add in the date of 2344 BC reached above for the Great Flood event, we arrive at 3684 BC. This fits perfectly with the start of known Sumerian culture around 3500 BC. This timeline would also reason why Biblical figures had such long-lived lives, as Methuselah lived 969 years before the flood, and this would be 53.83 years of age based on an 18-hour day (969 18 years = 53.83 years). The figures are all wrong, and based on a flawed recounting of events. We must begin to think outside of the box that we've been placed in!

The kingship dates after the Flood of Utnapishtim were retold from the Sumerian narrative as the Biblical 'Great Flood of Noah'. A story written almost 2,000 years after the event would have to be taken from archival documents, as Egypt, Babylon, and the Hindus had writing systems long before the Hebrews.

The kingship after the flood is based more on humans versus stars, as we have records of some of these actual people, and the adjustment is 24 hours, as opposed to 18 hours, as 5.5 hours were added to the day. The numbers will be shown to be reduced, as will how they rarely reduce to the Magic Constant of 9 upon which our reality is based.

Post Flood reduction formula: A 24 hours = C

[40-94] After the flood had swept over, and the kingship had descended from heaven, the kingship was in Kic [Kish]. In Kic, Jucur became king; he ruled for 1,200 years.

En-men-barage-si, who made the land of Elam submit, became king; he ruled for 900 (9) (37.5 years) years.

*En-men-barage-si is noted as having ruled around 2500 BC. In 2501 BC he fought a campaign war, as this would have him as a pre-Flood king.

Aga, the son of En-men-barage-si, ruled for 625 years (4) (26.04 years). (ms. P3+BT14 adds:) 1,525 (4) (63.54 years) are the years of the dynasty of En-men-barage-si. 23 kings; they ruled for 24,510 (3) (1,021.25 years total) years, 3 months, and 3.5 days. Then Kic was defeated and the kingship was taken to E-ana.

* Aga is noted as having waged a war in 2501 BC.

2344 BC minus 1,021 years = 1323 BC

[95-133] In E-ana, Mec-ki-aj-gacer, the son of Utu, became lord and king; he ruled for 324 (9) (13.5 years) (ms. P2+L2 has instead: 325) years. Mec-ki-aj-gacer entered the sea and disappeared.

* Mec-ki-aj-gacer entering the sea and disappearing sounds like the Exodus event likened to the Egyptian pharaoh!

Enmerkar, the son of Mec-ki-aj-gacer, the king of Unug, who built Unug (MSS. L1+N1, P2+L2 have instead: under whom Unug was built), became king; he ruled for 420 (6) (17.5 years) (ms. TL has instead: 900 + X) years. (ms. P3+BT14 adds:) 745 (7) (31.04 years) are the years of the dynasty of Mec-ki-aj-gacer. (ms TL adds instead: ...; he ruled for 5 + X years.)

P3+BT14 adds:) He captured En-me-barage-si single-handed.

* Dumuzid is well known in Sumerian myth, but he is listed as capturing En-me-barage-si who lived five kingships before his time, and is also noted as fighting a war in 2501 BC.

Gilgamec, whose father was a phantom (?), the lord of Kulaba, ruled for 126 years (9) (5.25 years).

* Gilgamec is the famed hero of the mythical Sumerian tale, "The Epic of Gilgamesh"

Ur-Nungal, the son of Gilgamec, ruled for 30 years (3) (1.25 years). Udul-kalama, the son of Ur-Nungal (ms. Su1 has instead: Ur-lugal), ruled for 15 years. La-ba'cum ruled for nine years. En-nun-tarah-ana ruled for eight years. Mec-he, the smith, ruled for 36 years (9) (1.5 years). Melem-ana (ms. Su2 has instead: Til-kug (?)...) ruled for six (ms. Su2 has instead: 900) years.

Then Unug was defeated and the kingship was taken to Urim.

1,323 BC minus 96.26 years = 1227 BC.

L1+N1, P2+L2, P3+BT14 have:) 171 years (9) (7.125 years). Then Urim was defeated and the kingship was taken to Awan.

1227 BC minus 7.125 years = 1220 BC.

[148-159] In Awan, ... became king; he ruled for ... years. ... ruled for ... years. ... ruled for 36 years (9) (1.5 years). Three kings; they ruled for 356 years (5) (14.83 years).

1220 BC minus 14.83 years = 1205 BC.

Then Awan was defeated and the kingship was taken to Kic.

[160-178] In Kic, Susuda, the fuller, became king; he ruled for 201 + X years (3) (8.375 years). Dadasig ruled for (ms. vD has:) 81 years (9) (3.375 years). Mamagal, the boatman, ruled for 360 (ms.

[179-185] In Hamazi, Hadanic became king; he ruled for 360 years (9) (15 years). One king; he ruled for 360 years.

1072 BC minus 15 years = 1057 BC.

Then Hamazi was defeated and the kingship was taken (ms. P3+BT14 has instead: was returned a second time) to Unug.

(In MSS. IB, L1+N1, TL, the Second Dynasty of Unug of ll. [185-191] is preceded by the Second Dynasty of Urim of ll. [192-203].)

* Lugal Ane-mundu was listed as having fought a war in 2501 BC during a time period in which Dumuzid, Gilgamec, and En-men-barage-si also existed.

Then Adab was defeated (ms. TL has instead: destroyed) and the kingship was taken to Mari.

1025 BC minus 3.75 years = 1021 BC.

S has instead: Then the reign of Akcak was abolished) and the kingship was taken to Kic.

1011 BC minus 4.125 years = 1007 BC.

(MSS. IB, S, Su1, Su3+Su4 list the Third and Fourth Dynasty of Kic of ll. [224-231] and ll. [244-258], respectively, as one dynasty).

[244-258] In Kic, Puzur-Suen, the son of Kug-Bau, became king; he ruled for 25 years. Ur-Zababa, the son of Puzur-Suen, ruled for 400 (MSS. P3+BT14, S have instead: 6) (ms.

912 BC minus 6.541 years = 905 BC.

Then who was king? Who was the king? (ms. Su3+Su4 has instead: who was king? Who indeed was king?) Irgigi was king, Imi was king, Nanm was king (in MSS.

(Mss. P2+L2, L1+N1 and P4+Ha conclude with a summary of the post-diluvian dynasties; the translation of ll.

The Sumerian king list was compiled from several source documents, tablets, and steles, dating from the third millennium BC from various locales and simultaneously reigning dynasties.

This compilation makes it almost impossible to reconcile the kingship dates in chronological order, and dates back to circa 165 BC. These dates have been compiled from the following documents: WB 62 clay tablet, WB 444 a vertically inscribed prism, the Kish Tablet, UCBC-9-819, the Dynastic Chronicle ABC 18, K 11251 fragment, K 12054 fragment, and the Apkullu List.

The attempt to homogenise these kingships into a coherent timeline has been almost impossible to achieve. A one hundred per cent accuracy level has been achieved in regard to the first nine kings noted before the Flood, as they are clearly celestial in origin, and because the descent of the kingship from heaven was used to connect rulers to the celestial heavens by divine right.

These insights do not seem to be at odds with scholars or archaeologists, as they only serve to support the true dating of later kingships. The true tale being told is that of a cosmic disturbance in the heavens being played out on Earth.

Some of the earliest wars to be noted were fought in Mesopotamia/Sumer, as mentioned in the records. In 2501 BC a series of battles were fought with En-men-barage-si, Aga, Enmerkar, Dumuzid, Enshakushanna, Eannatum, En-anna-tum, Entemena, and Lugal-anne-mundu.

The next war to be documented does not take place until nine years later, in 2492 BC, with the Nimrod-Halik war. This would be the last war to be recorded for 148 years before the Great Flood event of 2344 BC. The next war does not take place until 2295 BC, as Lugal-zage-si conquers several Sumerian states forty-nine years after the Flood. There were no regional wars for 197 years, as mankind was too busy trying to survive the impending disaster to bother waging war against one another.

The encoding of the Diatonic G-Scale was done in an esoteric fashion for the initiated to understand, versus the exoteric knowledge given to the masses.

This veiling was also added in many religious doctrines, as the King James version of the Bible shows the encoding of the ancient Solfeggio frequencies in Numbers. Six of the Solfeggio frequencies were found by doctors Joseph Puleo and Leonard Horowitz.

The author of this current article has personally located the remaining three Solfeggio frequencies in the Numbers book of the Bible and this is clearly shown in the author's book, The Ancient Solfeggio Frequencies Encoded in the King James Bible Book of Numbers.

Shown there is how the Solfeggio frequencies and the Diatonic G-Scale are related to the sacred geometry and solar harmonics of the universe.

There are times when documents and texts do not offer the straightforward understanding that is initially expected of them, or that we have been led to believe exist in them. Some things are truly straightforward in nature, and those that are assigned to our true nature are often shielded from sight. It is up to each individual to discover the truth for themselves.
